TINGTING XU, Msc Business Analysis and Management

Why did you choose to study at Loughborough?

As an international student from China, I am particularly interested in the globalization of business and the effect of this on economics worldwide. After the application of the reform program and implementation of an ‘open-door’ policy in China, international business has played a major role in the Chinese economy and also been one of the hottest topics within the global economy in recent years. These measures have brought about more credible new business patterns which has in turn enabled people to establish international business relationships with China and to transfer products and technologies more efficiently than ever before and in different ways; all of which I find absolutely interesting.
